Key pad is good, with nice rubber feel to it, good for texting, the signal strength is good in this phone unlike other models of SE which had signal problem, the backlight does not off but stays dim when in call(nice feature).while in call, all menu options are accessible, including java applications, call swapping is easy. sunlight visibility is ok ok, not as good as SE T715. SE should give option to move or remove operator name in display, wallpapers of people, the face is hidden because of operator name.
its sound quality is very poor. i will suggest don't buy this mobile.

If any of these two things don't allow it then u will not be able to access PlayNow.

Fred, 28 Nov 2010Many people buy this phone, but no review. Why? Because it's cheap and good? Please, GSMARENA!... moreIf you want GSMarena to do the review, don't write in the forum, write to them ("contact us" on this very same page). I don't know whether or not someone from GSMarena reads all the forums.
